Equinox seemed like the one.
We did not do the Equinox for the Holy Land. We ended changing to the Azamara Journey. However we have just got off ther Equinox from an 11 day Caribbean. I have to tell you the food was the worst we've ever had in around 35 cruises. They use the cheapest cuts of meat and try to drown them in sauces. Doesn't help.
The cabins were fine. Lost of storage room. Balcony was quite adequate. Bathroom was a good size. You can send laundry to be done. I did twice but I had coupons so didn't have to pay for it.
Most people did dress formally on the 2 formal evenings. The shows were excellent. We ate at Tuscan Grill and that was the only place where we were able to order a steak which was excellent. If we could have got reservations every other night we would have.
When we were on the Solstice in May we found Morano's perfect - this time terrible.
The lobster in both the dining room and Morano's was a complete waste of money. Tiny tiny and drowned in sauce (not drawn butter). Absolutely tasteless.
The ship itself is beautiful. The Solstice deck is a nice place to sit and enjoy the sun and a good book. The Sky Lounge is a nice place to sit and watch from the front of the ship.
We just returned last night so I must get unpacking and laundry done but if you have any specific questions let me know.
